We live in a very different world now and to be honest it seems like the norm is farfetched. It took a lot of adjustments from all of us and adapting to get to where we are now.
Resilient is the word that describes you! Imagine having to deal with everything in your life. Taking care of your family, supporting them, working, living your own life, dealing with your own emotions. It’s a lot!
I am on the same boat too. But I have the following tricks up my sleeve to keep the positivity in my life and my dear, I want to share it with you. I am choosing these tricks will help you too.
- Shift your thoughts
Instead of stating the negative, focus on the positive. I know that this does not happen overnight, but one minor change has a compounding effect, my dear. Be gentle with yourself and practice looking on the positive side of things.
No one wants to hang out with a Debbie Downer and you are not one of them.
If I am stuck in traffic and about to be late for work, I focus on the positive. I am alive, I am healthy and I am on my way to my job and earn money. There is no point in getting frustrated. It ruins your day even more.
Whenever I go grocery shopping for one item and came back home with a cart full of items but the one item that I needed, I shrug my shoulder and move on. I used to call myself stupid for forgetting it and dear, it doesn’t feel good at all.
If you are not chosen for the promotion that you have been working hard for and thought that the person who got it didn’t deserve it. It’s okay, think that something bigger is in line for you.
Everything happens for a reason my dear, focus on the good outcomes even though it’s hard to see sometimes.
- Consume positive content
This is huge! I was never fond of watching the news, reality shows, or anything of the like because the content is either drama or negativity.
Let me ask you this when was the last time you watched the news on T.V. and felt alive and motivated? Very rare right? And you can’t even remember. That is because the content is all negative that it drains your energy and you don’t realize it.
Choose to read or watch contents that promote positivity, this blog for example.
- Surround yourself with positive people
You can’t change the people around you, but you can change the people around youAnonymous
Debbie Downers, Negative Nancys are not the ideal people to surround yourself with. These people will not change for you, but you can change and choose the people you surround yourself with.
You can choose to be with the people who have the same visions as you. People who will cheer and support you on everything you do. People who are willing to teach you. People who motivate you.
- Change your mood
Bad things happen all the time right? But are we supposed to let it get to us? Are we supposed to let it ruin our day? No.
We have the power to change our mood and shift the day to become better.
Here are ways on how I change my mood:
- Listening to music. Listening to positive and upbeat music to be exact. ( e.g Broken and beautiful by Kelly Clarkson and Titanium by David Guetta feat Sia).
- Dancing to high vibing music.
- Listen to a podcast. I listen to motivational podcasts on Spotify. Mindset Mentor by Rob Dial is one of my favorites or even motivational videos on Youtube.
- Sex. Don’t deny it. The feeling after being intimate changes our mood.
- Practice self-love
This is pretty obvious. Whatever your definition of self-love is. A massage, mani-pedi, spa, facial, or whatever self-pampering activities, practice it more often.
My self-love activities are:
- Going to beach
- Earthing (being one with nature)
- Exercising – to stay healthy and stay active
- Hypnosis audios
- Eating ice cream
- Watching movies
- Sitting with myself
Again, we always have a choice. You always have a choice and you can choose to do things to improve. Improve yourself. Improve your surrounding. Improve your emotions. All these resulting in you protecting your energy.
You deserve it! Let me know how these tricks helped you, can’t wait to chat about it.
